Photos from the Show today :

http://picasaweb.google.com/mostro900/Ducati1098

a bit more orange in the photos than in real life, but quite sweet. However, after looking at the MV F41000, ummm, I know which one I would prefer...attention to detail.....

$26,000 + ORC for base model, $31,000 +ORC for top-end model. No, don't know the differences.

Lovely...nice shots thanks for that!

So just to clarify...which would you prefer? The MV? I'd have to sit on the fence on that one. Probably come down to money if I was trying to make a decision between both. I do love the MV F4.

Cheers

Yeah, I'd go the MV. Just a bit more special and really finished off nicely, but it is a little more expensive.

From what I read today, base model gets Showa suspension and fibreglass fairings, the S model gets Ohlins and carbonfibre fairings.

I think the S also gets the electronic download gear/software as well as slightly lighter wheels. Pretty sure ducati.com has the specifics.

Hey guys I was only $350 off the price estimate.
The old 1.75 times multiple of the US price works well.
The price we pay to live in the lucky country I guess.

Please don't tell me there is not any orange for real and that's a camera glitch?

MV craps all over it in class and style. But of course its creator had just a bit to do with the 916.
Anyway its an improvement on the 999.

Its funny how the 999 is so much better in the flesh than pics.
I was just over at the dealer to get my chain tensioner wrench and they has a 999R Xerox on display.
Was very impressed. [thumbsup]
Was told the Aus dealers are all going down to Eastern Creek soon for a blat on the 1098.
What a life!
